The Lions Clubs of Bermuda kicked off their annual fundraiser for those who are blind or visually impaired.

The White Cane Tag Day, which is held every Friday and Saturday in March, officially started yesterday as members of the charity offered a white tag to Rena Lalgie, the Governor.

The fundraiser provides cash used to help pay for eye examinations, eyeglasses and other eye services for people of all ages.

Money also goes towards free preschool sight screenings every year and the collection and distribution of lenses and frames in economically disadvantaged countries.

Fundraising will take place in the City of Hamilton and St George’s.
